Coffee may quite literally become the gold of the new age. Why? Coffee is not just versatile when it comes to taste and aroma, but for the various benefits of the already brewed, used coffee grounds as well.
There are many ways used coffee grounds can be used that will seal the deal on your love for coffee.
Use as a Fertilizer or Compost
Starting from the basics, this is a more known fact about used coffee grounds. Instead of throwing coffee grounds away, throw them at your plants! Well, not literally. Coffee grounds make excellent fertilizers as they have all the nutrients your plants need to grow like nitrogen, calcium, potassium, iron, phosphorus, magnesium and chromium.
When plants start growing they take the required nutrients from the soil which in turn depletes the nutrients in it. Coffee grounds will help your plants grow to their full potential.
Don’t need fertilizer right now? That’s okay! Just make a compost out of the used coffee grounds and keep it for later use.
Bid Goodbye to Dark Circles
Too many waking hours and too little sleep get the best of our skin, and it is what makes the area under our eyes a little baggy. The miracle plant that coffee is, it has anti-inflammatory and blood circulating properties that help you get rid of puffiness and appearance of aging. So say goodbye to your unsightly dark circles and relax sipping on your coffee. Just add water or coconut oil to the used coffee grounds and you’re good to go.
Repair Scratched Furniture
As earthy and beautiful wooden furniture looks, it also gets scratched very easily. Now you have a quick fix to it. Make a thick paste of coffee grounds and water, apply on the scratch and let it sit for 15-20 mins. You’ll find that your scratches become more buffed up and the coffee grounds will also help in staining the scratch back to brown. If you want a darker shade of brown, just reapply the mix using a cotton swab or bud every few hours.
Deodorize Almost Anything
Whether it’s a smelly refrigerator, room, drawer or the dreaded smelly socks, used coffee grounds can absorb or neutralize almost all kinds of odors. Just wrap the coffee grounds in a piece of cloth and place it wherever your nose points to. When you enter that place the next time, it will not be the same. You can also apply used coffee grounds as a scrub to remove the stubborn stench of onion and garlic from your hands.
Make Your Pots And Pans Spotless
As much as we love food, it may not give that love back to your cookware. More than often food gets stuck on our favorite cookware and just does not want to come off. If you are feeling bad for your hands and want to quit the hassle of constantly scrubbing your pots and pans, try used coffee grounds. With a slightly rough texture, rubbing coffee grounds will help you in cleaning tough food stains from your cookware.
Look Great And Feel Great
This is one of our favorite benefits of used coffee grounds. Coffee has exfoliating properties that help remove dirt and dead cells from your skin. It is also an antioxidant so it helps you beat the sunburn. With its blood circulating properties, it will cut down excess fat tissue i.e. cellulite on your body and will give you healthy and happy skin.
This only proves that coffee is not only good for our taste palettes but also for our body, mind, soul, and surroundings. We’re glad to be coffee junkies! Are you? Let us know in the comments below. Visit our site: https://beskocoffee.com
